The Target capture for Illumina sequencing workshop will cover state-of-the-art methodology for generating DNA sequence data from multiple loci and individuals for phylogenomics and population genomics analyzes. You will learn the complete process from designing a Next generation sequencing (NGS) target capture project, the most essential steps in the lab, and the bioinformatic processing of the produced data. The course is aimed at equipping students with the necessary knowledge to design and carry out their own target capture project, and make sensible and informed decisions along the way.
Course teachers : Tobias Andermann
Recommended background : We strongly recommend everyone to have a decent basic knowledge of bash, as well as some basic genetics and / or bioinformatics background.
Course level : PhD-level course. Motivated MSc students can be admitted as well. The format of this course requires students to identify the need of using these methods in their research, and students with PhD projects that include target capture will be prioritized.
A 2 ECTS course certificate will be given to students that pass the course by ForBio.
Fee : No course fee. Accommodation, food and bench fees will be covered at Tjärnö, and ForBio can cover the travel costs for Norway-based members.
Course plan : The University of Gothenburg course plan can be found here .
Application : The course will be taught in person in Tjärnö .
